The 2018 Portuguese hopefuls Claudia Pascoal and Isaura, in league with this year’s Eurovision slogan and theme art, got All Aboard and filmed their Eurovision postcard on a ship in Lisbon.
The delegations and participants of the 43 participating countries at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest will be travelling to Portugal prior to the contest in order to film their respective presentation postcards. Each artist will be portrayed in an activity or a challenge.
The postcards will showcase the beauty of Portugal and will portray the Eurovision artists enjoying the sights and sounds of the host country.
The presentation postcards serve as a massive platform for the host country to promote its tourism and showcase itself on a global scale as millions of viewers tune in to watch Europe’s favorite television show. The Eurovision Song Contest reaches households beyond Europe, from Australia to Argentina, from China to New Zealand, from USA to India etc.
The Portuguese postcard
The 2018 Portuguese Eurovision representatives Isaura and Claudia Pascoal invite us to All Aboard the Navio-Escola Sagre where they have filmed their Eurovision postcard.
Isaura and Claudia spent the whole day on Portugal’s oldest naval ship, the Navio Escola Sagres. The Portuguese Eurovision postcard will depict the duo sailing aboard the magnificent vessel on the Tagus River.
The iconic Portuguese boat welcomed the Portuguese Eurovision hopefuls aboard, the girls had an extraordinary experience exploring the entire naval vessel. They assure us that they will never forget this marvelous day!
Claudia was thrilled with the experience:
I’ll never forget this day!
